Richard Marx – Heaven Only Knows lyrics

I watch the world go round and round
And my life goes by at the speed of sound
I walk the night
And I wonder just where I belong, oh

My heart is young, but my soul is old
I've never been one to do what I was told
My back to the wall
Is the only place I can feel strong, oh

Heaven only knows what lies before me
Heaven only knows what all my searching is for
All my life I've waited for a miracle
But I can't ask for anything more

I like to think I'm a faithful man
To resist desire, and do all I can
I hope to die in the arms of the woman I love, oh

Repeat Chorus

I've always wondered how to know right from wrong
Looking for a reason to replace what is gone
But somehow the road just seems to lead right back to me

Repeat Chorus
